Hi.
Call me clueless but I cannot seem to find a list of acceptable items for carry-on for Carnival cruises. I was on the website but can't find it.
If someone has a link or list, it would be very much appreciated.

goto www.carnival.com to FAQ under security and you will see your answer. If I knew how to make a link I would have given it and the list is long so I didn't cut and paste. A link from the question will give you a PDF file to download. Mostly looks like common sence, Leave your gun at home and don't bring your bicycle type stuff

A few odd things have been pulled in the past. There was a guy that liked to scuba drive. He bought his own gear which apparently included a scuba knife (I did not know there was such a thing) and they either would not let him bring in on board or they just questioned him ..I can't remember. Regardless, leave the scuba knife at home as well.

Actually a Scuba knife is OK if the blade isn't more than 4 inches, but you have to check it with the purser or security and when you want it go get it from them.

Sometimes Ceremonial Swords are allowed. Or so it says

I think you never know.

I remember one cruise we had a large "checked" bag -- it was more of a duffle bag than suitcase...It held all our snorkel gear, and the like. My husband had put a pair of scissors in it, too. We always like to have a pair of scissors when we travel, and of course it had to be in checked luggage at the airport.

Anyway, first night on board we'd received all our luggage but this one bag....after several inquiries as to it's whereabouts (we were beginning to think it had been left on the dock) we were told it was still down in the holding area because the x-ray screening had revealed the scissor blades. So they brought it up, hubby had to actually say, "We packed scissors in it, for our own use in our stateroom." (or something like that -- I just know that we had to state that we had packed them) THEN they gave us our bag.

Makes you think it's too much hassle....but scissors are one of those things we always seem to need.

On Pride it was announced on the P.A. no knives were to be purchased in Mazatlan or Cabo and brought back on-board. If found, they were going to be confiscated.

Anymore, I can't say I want a bunch of people walking around with knives!
